The best way to get Sky TV is often by taking one of the Sky bundles – this is where you get all three of their services – TV, phone and broadband – in one. Some of the most popular bundles from Sky can be found here.
How Sky Bundles Work
There are 3 parts to a Sky bundle – TV, broadband and phone. The broadband and phone elements have 2 levels of service to choose from – Broadband Everyday Lite or Broadband Unlimited and Sky Talk Freetime or Sky Talk Unlimited, more details below.
Sky TV Packages come in two sizes – Entertainment, which has all the channels of the Variety Pack and Style & Culture Pack – and Entertainment Extra, which is all of the channels from all 6 packs. Then you can add on any premium channels you want such as Sports and Movies. If you want access to HD channels you also take the HD Pack for an extra £10.25 a month. If you want the complete Sky experience you can take the Sky World HD package which consists of all 6 Entertainment Packs, all of the Sports and Movies channels and the HD Pack – this is also the only way to get the Sky 3D channel. Here’s a summary of the TV packages;
- Choose from Entertainment or Entertainment Extra packs
- Entertainment costs £20 a month and Entertainment Extra costs £25
- Choose any premium channels you wish to add – Sky Sports, Sky Movies and extra channels ESPN, MUTV, Chelsea TV, MGM HD and Disney Cinemagic
- Sky Sports and Movies can be taken individually or in complete packs
- Choose HD or standard definition – for HD channels you need the HD Pack
